Our goal is to offer Airbnb guests a unique opportunity to experience life in a "Tiny House" & re-live some childhood in our awesome retro arcade (all 40+ games on free-play). The atmosphere we've tried to create is FUN & DIFFERENT. We want AirBnB'ers from ages 6 - 106 to relax, have fun, play lots of games, be yourself & feel at home here. We'll make your stay FUN! Where else can you play pinball & arcade games 24/7 & sleep in a tiny house made from a shipping container? NO PETS SORRY!

The space
5/19/2020 - CORONA VIRUS CONCERNS? - When you stay here, you will be the ONLY people in the arcade, tiny house and pool (other than me occasionally). The surfaces in the tiny house and arcade are all wiped down with lysol wipes after each reservation. You will not need to wear gloves, masks or social distance here. It's a very safe environment to have some fun with your loved ones. If you have any questions, please message me.

**** THE POOL IS OPEN AND 65 DEGREES AS OF 4/7/21 ****

I hate rules but after 3 years of renting our space on airbnb, I have unfortunately had to come up with a few. Please read these rules before arriving. I get annoyed when a guests arrive and ring our doorbell asking where they should park, can they use the pool, can they bring extra guests as long as they don't stay overnight, where's the arcade? etc. etc. etc.

1. NO DOGS OR PETS OF ANY KIND.

2. We DO NOT host kids under 6 years old. Please don't ask me to overlook this or lie about your child's age.

3. You must sign a waiver if you want to use the swimming pool.

4. ABSOLUTELY NO "GET TOGETHERS", "PARTIES", "DINNER PARTIES", REUNIONS OR "EVENTS" HERE. We live here and will see you setting up balloons, cake, decorations, booze and party favors. You're not sneaky and the rules DO apply to you. It happened again today (7/7/20) and I refunded their money & asked the people to leave. We are in a quiet residential neighborhood and respect our neighbors. Respect our rules please.

5. You absolutely cannot invite your friends or family over to play in the arcade & swim in the pool. We DO NOT allow our guests to bring their own guests. Due to insurance purposes, we only allow paid guests on the premises. All guests must be included on an airbnb reservation.

6. The slide, diving board and hanging chairs have a 200 lb weight limit. please remember this.

7. Our power bill can run $800 a month so you MUST TURN OFF THE ARCADE if no one is using it for 20 mins or longer. It's super easy to turn the arcade off. Just say "Alexa arcade off".

8. Please play nice and treat the games as if they were your own. No thrashing games around. They are expensive, they can be fragile and they are "my babies".

9. Set all drinks in one of the 20+ drink holders conveniently located on pinball legs throughout the arcade OR on the table by the door... NOT ON A GAME or ON THE FLOOR please. DO NOT SET DRINKS ON THE 2 RED NASCAR DRIVING GAMES! Both these games MOVE violently while you play them! Your drink will promptly end up on the floor, on the game or in your lap!

10. Do NOT throw the skee-balls or footballs out of their respective games. I shouldn't even have to say this but sadly we've had things broken by stupid people throwing the balls around the arcade.

11. The claw machines are the ONLY games in the entire arcade that cost money. Bring some dollar bills if people in your party will want to play the claw machine. $1 bills work in all the claw games.

___________________________________________________________________

Now that I've covered some of the rules and expectations... here's some info on our airbnb... Check us out in Atlanta Magazine's "Best Of Atlanta" December 2019 issue! They chose us as "the best place to spend a rainy afternoon"! It's great fun here on sunny days too though! >;-)

We have 3 new claw machines as of 7/13/20! They are the ONLY games in the entire arcade that costs money to play. They all take $1 bills. I had to charge guests to play because filling the game with toys and candy isn't inexpensive. If you think people in your party will want to play, please bring some quarters or dollar bills.

I'm sometimes asked if every airbnb host washes the bedding & towels between guests? I don't know about other hosts but let me assure everyone that I personally do ALL the laundry between EVERY SINGLE RESERVATION. I make the bed & clean the tinyhouse myself. I have 4 sets of sheets/bedding and 12 sets of towels. No worries!
___________________________________________________________________

We have fit a family of 6 in the tiny house (2 adults & 4 smaller kids) but it is tight. The space is best suited for 3 people. 4 to 5 people will fit but it's tight... 3 people on the queen bed, 1 on the chair bed & 2 on a small mattress on the floor. Think of it as an adventure and you'll have a blast.

Our tiny house is an 8 foot wide by 20 foot long steel shipping container turned into a comfortable 160 sq ft living area by a company called Lamon Luther in Villa Rica Ga. It was the first one they EVER built! They hire local homeless people, teach them skills to build things from furniture to tiny houses. They won an ICON award for the work they're doing in the community. Google them to see some other tiny houses they build.

We outfitted the space with handmade furniture by Copeland in Vermont. The mattress is a Sealy "Black" set (new in 2018). The bedding is mostly from Restorations Hardware.

The 32" smart TV has free Hulu, Disney+, Netflix & Amazon Prime Videos. All the free local Atlanta channels included too.

You'll find plenty of outlets and USB charging ports inside and outside the tiny house. The mini-split heat & A/C system is operated by remote control. The 38 gallon hot water offers all the hot water you might need. The shower is 1/2 size but there is plenty of room. In the shower, you will find a dispenser with shampoo, conditioner and body wash. We supply towels for all guests & a hair dryer. There is a first aid kit & bug spray if needed.

In the fridge you will find complimentary water, soda and other drinks. There is a large bowl of many types of snacks too.
The Keurig coffee maker has a variety of coffees for you to try. The microwave will reheat your leftovers. We have tried to think of everything a guest would need but if you find something missing, please ask and we may have it on hand.

You (and guests on the reservation) can use the arcade as much as you like, whenever you like. Even at 3AM! If you arrive after 8pm, I won't be able to personally show you the arcade BUT you can still use it yourself by walking in and saying... "Alexa turn on the arcade!" and all games will turn on. When you're done, simply say loudly "Alexa arcade off".

Guest access
Guests (that are on the reservation) will have complete and sole access to the 160 sq/ft tiny house. It is tucked away in the back corner of our property, not connected to our home. You will also have access to our arcade. The games range from 1974 to 2020. There's something for everyone!

PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY IN THE ARCADE (don't spill anything!!!) DO NOT PUT YOUR DRINKS ON ANY GAMES. SET DRINKS IN THE DRINK HOLDERS ON (or near) THE GAME YOU ARE PLAYING.

Games include a 4 person Pac-Man Smash air hockey, pinball games, arcade games, shooter games, driving games, electronic dart board, puck bowling, skeeball, NFL football toss and more. There are currently 40+/- games on hand (as of 2/17/18 - see list below) but we're always adding to the lineup. Almost everything is set on free play.

Our entire backyard is yours as well (except the BBQ grill - sorry). We have a sundeck w/ lounge chairs, LL Bean Hammock and screen room.

There is a 18 x 36 in-ground, saltwater swimming pool (3 to 8 ft deep - no pets in pool please). Saltwater means there are no harsh chemicals to irritate your eyes or skin. We installed a new liner and LED light in 3/18. The light makes night swimming a lot more fun! You can swim anytime! You will have to sign a waiver if you plan on using the pool. >>>The slide, diving board and hanging chairs have a 200 lb weight limit.<<<
Press the "home" button on the TV remote and you'll be able to choose from free Netflix, HULU, Amazon videos, Disney+ & many local Atlanta channels.

2/5/18 - We just bought 9 of hip hop artist T-Pain's arcade games from his private gameroom in his Georgia mansion! He had some incredible games & we were very fortunate to be able to acquire them.

>>NO DRINK SPILLS IN THE ARCADE PLEASE!!!<< Sorry, but I need to keep saying this because we've had some irresponsible guests spill drinks on/in some of the games and on the floor. It creates an incredible nightmare for me.

Location

Lithia Springs, Georgia, United States

Lithia Springs is a great area. It's safe, quiet (except for distant train horns) and close to Atlanta. We are 2.5 miles off exit 44 (Thornton Rd.) of the i20 interstate. Be sure to check out nearby Sweetwater Park. There is a nice little museum, miles of great hiking trails, boat rentals, fishing, wildlife (ducks & geese), BBQ area and an old mill to explore.

FYI ----> If fine dining, upscale restaurants & bustling city life are your thing, you won't find that here. If you want to be close to those types of things, you're better off staying 16 miles away in Atlanta. Lithia Springs is sort of laid back and quiet suburb for the most part. We DO have all of the fast food places and the chain restaurants (Chili's, Longhorns, Ruby Tuesday, Applebees, Olive tree & more) that you expect. We even have some great BBQ places and diners. There's just nowhere around here that you need to dress up to go out to dinner.

Food: if you don't feel like going out, UberEats. Grubhub, DoorDash and others will deliver many different types of food right to your door.

If you want to go out... check out these great local places...

Contreju Jamaican restaurant 639 Thornton Road Lithia Springs Georgia (Authentic Jamaican Food - take out - Closes at 9pm )

Wallace barbecue 3035 Veterans Memorial Highway Austell Georgia
(A unique BBQ taste you're NOT used to. Nothing is slathered in BBQ Sauce! - Hours vary)

La Fiesta Mexican 1102 Thornton Road Lithia Springs Georgia
(Great Mexican food - take out or dine in -open late)

Don Claudio Taqauria. Excellent Mexican food only 1/2 mile away. Menu online.

Tiffany's Kitchen 7413 Lee Rd, Lithia Springs, GA
(Greasy spoon - local favorite, excellent breakfast lunch and dinner - Closes at 9pm)

Hi I am a 53 yro married man who enjoys pinball and arcade games. I also love motorcycling and my dog Troy. In another life I was a drywall finisher, a forklift operator and a newspaper delivery guy. My husband is an accountant who is always busy so you probably won't get a chance to meet him.
